As it is Valentines day, I had a romantic notion that today I would go on a photowalk and look for hearts. I figured that today of all days, the lichen would form itself into hearts, that heart shaped pebbles would litter the beach and that the planes approaching Gatwick would carve hearts in their contrails in the sky…..
It didn’t take long to realise I wasn’t going to find any hearts! So instead I thought about love and just took pictures that are mainly soft and ethereal. The sun had just burnt through the fog, but everywhere was still soaked in dew…..
As I returned, I saw a grandfather walking with his toddler grandson, and I thought their holding hands perfectly encapsulated love.
